Trevor M. Braun received his PhD in chemical engineering in 2016 from the University of Washington, performing research in the Electrochemical Materials & Interfaces Laboratory under the supervision of Daniel T. Schwartz. Braun’s research efforts include both computational and experimental design for local bipolar electrochemistry on conductive substrates without direct electrical connections. While at the University of Washington, he was awarded a GAANN fellowship from the Department of Education and received a departmental Outstanding Teaching Assistant award voted on by undergraduate students.
Prior to graduate school, Trevor received his BS in chemical engineering at the Colorado School of Mines in 2011, where he was a four-year NCAA DII collegiate soccer athlete. Trevor was awarded a National Research Council Research Associateship Program Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2016 to continue research in the field of electrodeposition under the supervision of Tom Moffat at the National Institute for Standards and Technology, where he currently works.
His broader research interests include bipolar electrochemistry for indirect deposition of materials, scanning probe electrochemical methods, characterization of electrodeposited thin films, and electrochemical additive manufacturing.
